My tale begins with the ringing of bells
A king was born to the ringing of bells
The people rejoiced to the ringing of bells
And everybody danced to the sound of ringing bells

The passage of time was known with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was accustomed to the ringing of bells
The people convened to the ringing of bells
And everybody adhered to the sound of ringing bells

The Black Death plague was announced with ringing of bells
The kingdom was deserted to the ringing of bells
The people stayed away from the ringing of bells
And everybody cursed the sound of ringing bells

The great harvest was marked with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was crowded to the ringing of bells
The people were thankful to the ringing of bells
And everybody blessed the sound of ringing bells

The great winter was told with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was alert to the ringing of bells
The people prepared to the ringing of bells
And everybody listened for the sound of ringing bells

Spring was ushered in with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was flowered to the ringing of bells
The people blossomed to the ringing of bells
And everybody applauded the sound of ringing bells

The news of the old King’s death was spread with the ringing of bells
The Kingdom stirred unrest with the ringing of bells
The people were fearful of the ringing of bells
And everybody tensed to the sound of ringing bells

The new king was sworn with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was peaceful to the ringing of bells
The people were pleased with the ringing of bells
And everybody welcomed the sound of ringing bells

The new king was wed with the ringing of bells
The kingdom celebrated to the ringing of bells
The people were merry to the ringing of bells
And everybody feasted to the sound of ringing bells

The Great War was declared with the ringing of bells
The kingdom was in chaos to the ringing of bells
The people fought and bled to the ringing of bells
And everybody armed to the sound of ringing bells

The great tower was destroyed and no more ringing of bells
The Kingdom was lost and no more ringing of bells
The people moved on with no more ringing of bells
And everybody forgot the sound of ringing bells

So my story ends with no more ringing of bells
